Mystical forces and energetic transformation are the territories of my art as I embrace and surrender into play-induced euphoria.
The majority of the Western world’s population hasn’t realized that these mystical states can be achieved. I want to change that – so the focus of my artistic work is to figure out how these enchanted reality-transforming moments of euphoric play can be experienced.
Besides direct experience, my work draws on a lineage of cultural and artistic work that has explored the mystical. From the ancient shamanic and ritualized practices such as mask work to modern developments that can only be realized through new technologies.
I wish everyone gets a chance to access the sweet mystical joy.
